Hello, I love the growing bear. He is cute. Gorgeous view of the mountains.

Awesome quote. Enjoy your day and weekend ahead.

Susan Heather said...

Jean I do hope you are keeping well and no more trips in your golden carriage.

Yvonne @Quilting Jetgirl said...

He is growing and it is so appropriate to have the flowers on his belly, too.

Your mountains are spectacular. I did write a response to you comment on my blog about you getting motivated to take pictures again. I'm working on it, but it is so hot here and the older I get the less I can tolerate the heat. Love the bag you gave me and am using it now that it is summer here.

What an awesome list of quilters...thanks for sharing Jean.
Lovely bear and those mountains are so spectacular! Still 30plus every day here some though without humidity which is so good.

I wonder how tall Growing Green Ted will end up! Your snowy mountains are gorgeous!

Dione Gardner-Stephen said...

Love your growing bear. He looks very pleased to be getting bigger. :)

Anita Jackson @ Domestic Felicity said...

Hello from the US ;) I like the fabric selection #1 . Thanks for the tutorials and Happy Gardening Today!

The photo of the Central Plateau Mountains is glorious. Thank you for bringing it out of your archives. And Growing Green Ted is darling. Trying to manage all those blog hop links would put me over the edge. I suspect that you are a much calmer and more patient than I am ~ LOL!
